In 2010 19% of pregnant women in the Netherlands used alcohol, according to a study by Caren Lanting and colleagues among 1,410 mothers with babies younger than 6 months who visited a well-baby clinic.
During the first three months of pregnancy 14% of the mothers drank. It was usually one glass once a month (or less often). Older women and women with higher education drunk more, just as women who smoked. 2.4% of pregnant women drank alcohol ánd smoked.
